    tobbAs Paintings

    Thought I'd try starting one of those threads.

    Here are a few of my more recent paintings. Crits and comments are welcome, of course.

    Were you playing Zero Mission when you were doing that Metroid painting by any chance?

    Shorinji: Thanks

    FightingSeraph: No. I actually haven't played that game. It's something I've been planning to do though. (And sorry, I removed that painting now. I felt like it didn't match the quality of the rest.)

    Here's another painting, "The Last Man On Earth".

    You ought to do some exercises in atmospheric perspective. I notice you ignore it nearly completely, and it is a pity: the air haze is often essential for suggesting depth and location.

    Another thing to watch for is light direction. Always keep track of where the light is coming from, and don't ignore falling shadows.

    Yet another thing is value composition. These pictures may not be a very big sample, but one shows relatively low value-range and looks grayish (the starship captain) and another does not have a cohesive value pattern and looks like camoflage (the old man with the eagle). Always keep track of where the brightest spot is and where the blackest one is, and use pure white and black as anchors for the rest of the picture. Also, combine dark and light parts into larger areas, so the painting has a simpler underlying pattern to keep the eye in.

    P.S. Oh, and do build perspective plots before you paint something like that old man on the shore. It will help you to keep angles and parallels consistent and keep you from doing jarring mistakes like that immense soda can on the beach, huge newspaper further on and the incredible-size mallet. (As a matter of fact, seek interesting combinations of objects instead of distributing them evenly; use texture to suggest piles of debris in the distance instead of painting it in detail.)

    Also, do research. These are the strangest, shortest fishing rods I had ever seen; where is this kind used?
